INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Public Schools is asking parents to reassure their children that they are safe in school in the wake of the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school that left 27 dead, including 18 children.

Superintendent Eugene White issued a statement Friday telling them to talk to their children. He asked the parents to let the children know that their bus driver, teacher, principal and other adults at their school are there to keep them safe.

The school district also sought to reassure parents, issuing a release saying that schools are locked, require any visitor to use only the main building entrance and require guests to enter the school through the main office.
